simply scared .. running loose , on his own , trapped in a cage , sentenced to death for fighting  the humane trying to leash him ………………. It is a new day for Ewok ! If you were 6.7 lbs the world would be scary too ! We reset his expiration date , to somewhere in the distant future.  He is thought to be a 4 year old terrier mix . He is now current on his shots , micro chipped , neutered and on heartworm prevention. He is timid , scared and most likely a good candidate for a very quite forever home . To welcome Ewok to your heart and home please submit your application .Thanks to Mary O’Malley at Reef Dog grooming in Gulfport for the kind touch and professional grooming

OSCAR is a handsome male Labradoodle born in 2009.  He weighs 68 pounds, and is a healthy happy active boy.  Oscar’s family is no longer able to accommodate his size and have asked us to find him a new loving home.  Oscar is very active, and loves to run, play, and cuddle.   Oscar needs a family with a fenced yard to romp with and hopefully another like size dog to play with him.  He gets along with most dogs we have introduced him to.  His favorite pastime is chasing little lizards.  He loves water.  He can busy himself for long periods in pursuit.  He loves to sit next to you on the sofa, and he loves to sit on your feet!  He loves affection.  He has been thru basic training and knows his commands and with an experienced handler he is compliant.  However, he needs continual reinforcement.  He has not been crated in his current home and has not been destructive inside the home.

Oscar is current on his vaccinations, current on preventatives, heart worm negative, neutered and his teeth are scheduled to be cleaned.  Due to his condition coming to rescue we had to shave him down however we have provided photos of what he will look like when his hair is grown out.  He is a big fluffy curly non-shedding guy!  He eats Fromm Gold dog food.    We are able to adopt to Florida Residents only.  Oscar requires frequent brushing and monthly grooming.  His coat is very curly like that of a Standard Poodle.  His adoption donation is $250.

Hi I’m Cody but my foster mom calls me Cody bear cause I look like a walking teddy bear. I am a Shihtzu/Pom mix and 6 years old. I’m sweet funny and so darn cute. I’m overweight at 16 pounds cause my previous owner thought you showed love by feeding. I’m mostly housebroken.  Up to date on my shots, neutered and micro chipped and  HW negative. I’m getting a good grooming tomorrow. I get along with my foster pack but it took a little while to warm up. I was adored by my Dad but he passed away. I’m very loving. I’m learning to walk good on a leash. I would like to have a playmate but I would be ok as an only if my owner gives me lots of attention. If you think I’ll fit in your family please go to Viprescue.org and fill out an application.
